“Oh no, not more foreign muck !” I hear you cry.  ‘Fraid so.

Part 2 of my 2015 Belgian holiday snaps come from Brussels, just in case Pauline needs any ideas or gets bored of shopping for chocolates and pashminas.

The Poeche

No idea then it was famous, but it must have been wonderful as I don’t remember anything.  Mrs RM reckoned it was great.
